We are looking to drastically increase our page speed and have found Nitropack.
Nitropack is a paid for service which drastically increases your page speed (see screenshot), however unfortunately this doesnt support Shopify platform.
Does anyone know of a Shopify alternative?
Jack from OpenThinking here!
Some of the features Nitropack offers are already included in your Shopify subscription, such as CDN, image compression, WebP conversion etc.
If you need a full package, tho, you can use an APP.
Just search for "Speed optimizer" in Shopify's App store .
Sorry to be brutal to these replies.
Running a compression audit doesn't bring the page speed down. It tells us what we already know.
Writing a reply with the words: how to speed up your Shopify site in 2020 makes people immediately think you are a thirsty clown.
Downloading an app from the Shopify store doesn't even come close to offering the core vital smashing performance of Nitro.
I wouldn't trust either of these two charlatans to help your site, as they have shown themselves to be meritless in their replies.
Sadly for the OP I thought I'd found the answer with Ezoic, but the server response time is so poor when it routes via Shopify, Cloudflare and then to Ezoic, it sort of undoes any of their work.
Much of their integration blocks basic functionality of your site and for us during a busy shopping season we spent close to £500 fixing it quickly as their support was very slow.
Didn't even get so much as an apology, just an email from the performance director stating they aren't really ready for Shopify e-commerce. (Doesn't stop them pitching for the business though)
Then you have to run a Google ad script even if you don't run ads, which is most sensible people on Shopify - sadly nothing comes close to what Nitro can do for WordPress sites and without any action or leadership from Shopify on this stuff, their customers will begin leaving the platform come the rude awakening in May 2021.
My team has built a shopify app that does something similar to Nitropack. This app was approved today and is currently unlisted.
Would any of you be interested in testing it on your stores?
Had to register just for this, if you didn't develop a proper CDN/ JS preloading solution as effective as NitroPack I was about to 😛
May I also test this for my clients?
And also are you in need of another developer? 🙂
